Poptropica at the North Logan Pumpkin walk

We're all getting into the Halloween spirit around here. Some of the Poptropica Creators have even taken their talents off-line to build a display at the Pumpkin Walk in North Logan, Utah. The Pumpkin Walk is an annual tradition in which local residents create pumpkin-based scenes inspired by popular games, films, TV shows, and more. Well, Poptropica fits right in!

Here are some pictures of their efforts.



Nice work! Looks as good as the website.

If you find yourself in the Cache Valley this season, drop by and take a look at this and all the great displays. Who knows -- you might even run into one of the Poptropica Creators!

It's official: Poptropicans love super villains!


Wow! We put up a poll last week asking players what their favorite new Island of the year is. Super Villain Island dominated the field, winning more than 50% of the vote! Of course, with more new Islands coming soon, we have to wonder if the results will hold through the end of 2012...

If you haven't played Super Villain Island and want to see what all the fuss is about, you can wait one more week until it becomes available to everyone. Or, you can get Membership and play it today! You win either way.

Top 30 hits


Judging by our poll, Super Villain Island is the most popular Island of the year so far. But how many of you have earned the Super Villain medallion, as well as the other 29 medallions on Poptropica? It's hard to do.

Remember, just as you can take a look at your friends' profiles to see how many medallions they've earned, so can other people look at your profile to see how many medallions you've earned! So be sure to go for the gold. The whole world is watching!

Standup comics

A long time ago, there was this thing called a newspaper, and somebody used to drop it off at your house every day. If you wanted to read comics, you had to wait for the paper to arrive, and then you could read that day's strips. Pretty crazy, right?

Well, we've got a better way to read comics. For some time now, we've had several of the best daily comics running on Poptropica -- comics like Peanuts, Big Nate, and Over the Hedge. And when you check in on the comics on Poptropica, you can read a week's worth at a time. Much better, if you ask us.

To read comics on Poptropica, all you need to do is log in, click on the "Daily Pop" icon in the upper righthand part of the screen, and then click the "comics" link. Enjoy!

More villains than you can shake a stick at

For Super Villain Island, we brought back four of our most dangerous villains: Black Widow, Dr. Hare, Captain Crawfish, and Binary Bard. But there are some other classic Poptropica evildoers hanging around on the Island. Have you seen them? Do you know what Islands they're from?

And is anyone missing?

Hmm. This might require a closer look. Become a Member today to play Super Villain Island!

More Poptropica books!

 

Last year, we were excited to bring you our first book, Poptropica: The Official Guide. But why stop there? This fall, we've got four new books coming your way.

Skullduggery Island: In this 160-page illustrated novel, a cruel pirate named Captain Crawfish has been raiding the small port of Fort Ridley. Our hero must embark on a journey to find a powerful ship and skilled crew to help him defeat Captain Crawfish and recover a map that will lead the islanders of Fort Ridley back to their treasure.

Astro-Knights Island: In this 160-page illustrated novel, the princess of the Kingdom of Arturus has been kidnapped by an evil inventor named Mordred who has taken her off into space. Our hero now must learn to build his own space craft and travel to the stars on an intergalactic quest to rescue the princess and save the kingdom of Arturus.

Pencil Warrior: Something sinister is erasing its way across Poptropica, and the only way to stop it is by re-drawing all the islands and re-creating the world before this new threat can erase every trace. This 64-page full-color doodle book is perfect for fans of Poptropica and anyone who loves to draw.

Poptropica Mad Libs: Poptropica Mad Libs features 21 hilarious and action-packed stories based on games and missions from the website. Fans of the site will love to bring the adventure to life by filling in the blanks of our brand new Mad Libs!

All of these books will be available on November 8.

Now, when your parents tell you it's time to stop playing Poptropica and do something more productive, you can tell them you'll just be reading instead!
